Hi,

Me, my wife and my daughter are all permanent residents of Canada and all of us have completed 2+ years (out of 5 years) residency obligation.

My wife is pregnant and is currently in India where we plan to have our 2nd child born.

Could you kindly advise me on the process on how soon I can bring the new born back to Canada on PR or any other option where he/she would be eligible for healthcare as well ?

If I have to sponsor from within Canada:

Can I start the sponsorship process?

And leave Canada to stay with my family in India and come back once the application is approved ?

Thanks & Regards.

1. You can apply for a TRV for the child, but it is unlikely to be issued as the child's intention is to become a permanent resident.
2. Once the child is born, you would have to return to Canada to submit a sponsorship application.

3. If the child is admitted as a visitor, s/he would not be eligible for health care until s/he becomes a PR. If admitted as a Permanent resident, after processing abroad, s/he would either be eligible for health immediately, or would have to wait 3 months depending on the province.

4. As you are PR you must remain in Canada during the processing of the application.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us. In addition to PMM's response, you may also find helpful information in the thread Permanent Residency outside Canada. Here is an excerpt about travelling back to Canada as a PR holder with children who are born abroad:


2. PR holders’ children who were born abroad

A child born to permanent resident parents while abroad doesn’t become a permanent resident by birth. According to Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations, to become a permanent resident, foreign nationals must apply either as a member of the family class, the economic class, or as a refugee.

Under the family class, permanent residents who are at least 18 years old and reside in Canada can sponsor their spouse, partner, or dependent children to become permanent residents and move to Canada.


So, while children born to PR holders outside Canada aren't immediately considered Permanent Residents, there are other options available for travel/sponsorship.


Please let us know if you have further questions. We hope that the information provided is helpful. You may also wish to speak to a reputable and registered immigration consultant or an immigration lawyer who is familiar with Canadian immigration regarding your situation before starting any application process.

Sincerely,


Your Settlement.Org team

Hello Team,

I and my wife got our PR on 2019. We'd to leave back in December 2019 due to financial settlements was ongoing in India. After that We planned and booked our tickets to travel in March 18th -2020. But it was so unfortunate that we could not travel on March 2020 because of Covid-19. In the same time my wife was pregnant and completed 3months. But that was not a reason for us to stay back. We checked with our Doctor and my wife had got a green signal to travel. However, the point is my delivered on Sept 2020. And, i applied my daughter passport after 3 months of birth date. At this point i was going through consultants , forums and many other youtube consultants and i am slightly unsure of which options to choose.
We planned to travel by March 2021, but now "Visa" for my daughter is blocker.

- TRV
- Apply Visit Visa and then we process our daughter document from Canada

Please suggest us an option now. At this point we both are in india with our daughter and now we are planning to travel back.
